12 Essential Flannel Items to Complete Your Outdoorsman Style

Fall weather is here, and that means it's time to break out the flannel.


What's that? You don't have a flannel shirt or jacket? Your old one is too small, or you lost one in the woods last year? Whether you don't want to stop fishing just because of a cold front, your camping trip isn't until the end of November, or you need to check trail cams, a flannel shirt or jacket will keep you comfortable as the temperatures drop.

Excuses aside, you know you need one. Or two. Or more. We did the work for you, and chose some of the best styles, features and deals of the greatest autumn article of clothing that exists.

Take a look at the picks, and get ready to battle the chill with a classic outdoorsmen look. If the temperature is below 50 degrees, you'll never walk out of your house without it again.
